The Constrictor Knot

This is an excellent knot for holding bundles together but it’s also the knot I use to tie fenders on the safety lines.

I prefer it to the clove hitch because it doesn’t come undone like a clove hitch and is simple and faster to tie/untie than a round turn and two half hitches.
